Mundane Monday Challenge #131

Savijarvi Manor, Sipoo, Finland

I am sure this activity goes on all around the world almost every day. If you own a dairy farm, a cattle ranch, or a horse farm, you have to store and maintain enough food for the animals to last through the winter. In today’s modern era, most farmers have given up on storing square meals for their animals and have adopted the much larger round bales.

Of course, these bales are too heavy to lift without assistance from machinery, so now the farmer has to have a front end loader to lift, move, and store the bales.

You have to get the bales from your large fields where they have been dropped by your baling machine:

When I was a young boy, my house was surrounded on three sides by a field that alternated being planted with corn and hay. During the hay cycle, the farmer baled the hay into smaller rectangular bales and then came back with a wagon and threw the bales up on the wagon and stacked them for transport back to the barn. No front end loader was required – just a great deal of manual labor.
